INFINITE MAGIC makes most appeal as he scored by over three lengths in a maiden at Wolverhampton last time and better is expected from Jeremy Noseda's colt stepping up in distance. Footstepsintherain made a winning start at the same track last month and should make a bold bid while the more exposed Danz Choice has been thereabouts over shorter trips of late. Stablemate Stiff Upper Lip won over 1m2f here in September and Flemish School has a shout on her earlier fifth at Nottingham.
